From notes on 1/12/13

Sweet malty aroma with lots of yeast. Brown color with creamy very foamy head. Has a bready, malty flavor with hints of licorice and caramel.

Appearance: It has a nice murky amber/brown color to it. It has a nice creamy beige head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of dark fruit (plums, figs, raisins), some breadiness, brown sugar and some spiciness form the yeast.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has sweet dark fruit (plums and figs mostly) a light breadiness, some brown sugar and a touch of spicy Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. Good but nothing exciting.

Serving type: bottle

From bottle at home. Although I found this interesting, but it was not to my liking. Way too much going on. My first impression was a slight sourness, which unto itself was surprising. The label lists many flavors the only ones that came through were some licorice root...deep on the tongue...& some burgundy notes. Rereading the ingredients, I think I should use this in a daube de boeuf. I will say that the 8.2% ABV was undetectable. Points for effort but just not for me.

on tap last night at Funcks in Palmyra, PA. Part of a flight, 4.5ozs

Thick brown body with reddish tones. Small white head which left some fine looking lacing. Have a cols, so no aroma. Incredibly smooth thick tasting beer, getting some dried fruit and a little heat in tha back of the mouth from the alcohol.

Not a style I seek out to much, but this one was pretty enjoyable.
